I guess I'm not going to be able to convince you to do it the right way
huh? Ahh well, I tried :(

You can disable the routing done under KDE by editing the file:

It's a bash script. Simply change "do_routing=1" to "do_routing=0".

This will mean the KDE UI's wont work (they will let you prioritise
things, but this configuration will simply have no effect.
